These tires float through snow and also grip really well.
I ride a variety of single track and gravel roads in the winter. Some are dedicated, and some are multi-use. I also frequently encounter fresh snow.
I didnï¿½t have any trouble staying on line in either scenario. Climbing or descending.
I also bought these tires because they fit my fat bike the best. Iï¿½ve had wider, but the snow clearance was small and it built up snow at my bottom bracket.
The 60tpi seems plenty compliant with low psi. It deforms well to shoe divots, roots and rocks.
The fit on the rim is snug.
I will buy them again.
These studs are pretty much impossible to beat for their grip over others studs on the market and they make a huge difference over standard, non-concave studs, especially in fat bike tires that don't have studs on the outer edge of tires. I've had these grip well on dense hardpack ice where other studs just skidded around like they were an ice skate. Very well suited for the Wrathchild 27.5 tires. While a tad expensive for 300pk, at least I don't have to worry about buying any for awhile as my tires shed studs.
after being fed up with eating it pretty hard a number of times on icy sections this winter I went searching for a pair of studded tires the widest my winter commuter could fit. bought these for the sale price. super confident with these on ice and hardpack conditions. wasn't able to "break" them in as recommended but have had no issues with studs on the rear tire (probably due to weight and less squirrely-ness). lost a few studs on the front tire but are very easy to replace (I bought 45Nrth stud pack and their install tool). rolling resistance is certainly noticeable on bare pavement but not as bad as I had expected. will definitely be using these all winter until there's no hint of ice left on the ground. will never go back from studded tires for winter commuting.
I bought two sets of Dillenger 4 60 stud tires for our fat tire E-bikes. They grip the snow plowed roads very well. We have extended our ride season into the dead of winter.
This is great because it will be mid April before the snow melts away in our neighborhood.
